Yes, soak that in for a moment. It has been ten years since Dean Smith left the game as the all time winningest coach in college basketball. Caulton Tudor of the N&O catches up with Dean to see what he is doing a full decade later. On one hand it does not seem like it has been that long but then again I think ACC Now hits the nail on the head:
Has it only been 10 years since Dean Smith retired? If you count in Doherty years, it feels like 20.
That’s for sure.
